Pat Buchanan Calls For ‘Massive Disobedience’ to Fight ‘Anti-Christian Discrimination’

Pat Buchanan is none too pleased the Supreme Court didn’t strike down gay marriage rulings in multiple states this week and has penned a column comparing “anti-Christian discrimination” to racial segregation.

“Today rogue judges and justices, appointed for life, answerable to no one, instruct a once-democratic republic on what laws we may and may not enact,” Buchanan writes, even though that’s basically exactly what the Court’s job is. “Last week, the Supreme Court refused to stop federal judges from overturning laws banning same-sex marriage. We are now told to expect the Supreme Court itself to discover in the Constitution a right of men to marry men and of women to marry women.”

Discussing the “de-Christianization” of public schools by the Supreme Court, Buchanan goes on to ask, “Why was there not massive civil disobedience against this anti-Christian discrimination, as there was against segregation?”

Well, Pat, because the Constitution calls for a separation of church and state, not the separation of black and white. So, maybe start there.

“Why did Congress, which has the power to abolish every federal district and appellate court and to restrict the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court, not act?” Buchanan wonders.

“In 1954, the Supreme Court ordered the desegregation of all public schools,” Buchanan writes. “But when the court began to dictate the racial balance of public schools, and order the forced busing of children based on race across cities and county lines to bring it about, a rebellion arose. Only when resistance became national and a violent reaction began did our black-robed radicals back down.”

And to think, at one point, this man could have been our president.

    Between them and the tea party. National anarchy isn’t far off.

    It’s good thing nobody listens to this idiot any more.

    I don’t remember him complaining when the Supreme Court came up with the decision in “Citizens United.” At least there are some constitutional tenets in play in same-sex marriage. The Supreme Court decided “Citizens United” with a rationale made up of whole cloth. I guess Pat’s concern is only when the decision is something he doesn’t like. Most of the judicial activism in this country is coming from conservative judges, not liberal ones.

    Pay attention, Pat:

    Marriage – not to be confused with Holy Matrimony – is a legal contract requiring a license issued by the state. As such, it is inherently unconstitutional to deny same-sex couples the right to enter into such a contract that is afforded every other consenting couple of legal age.

    Got that? It’s called the 14th Amendment. Equal protection under the law. Marriage is a LEGAL matter, not religious.

    Bear in mind that Buchannan is uber Catholic and thinks that the pope should rule the world.

    Does Pat know the Pope has also gone rogue and Pat may be asked to sit along side a gay person at mass?
